We look forward to welcoming you at our stand No. 33 in Hall B 2, at the 23rd edition of the International Agricultural Trade Fair INDAGRA (Romexpo), Bucharest – Romania, from 31st October – 4th November 2018
We look forward to welcoming you at our stand No. 336 in Hall 2, at the 73rd edition of the International Dairy Cattle Show - Fiera Internazionale del Bovino da Latte, Cremona - Italy, October 24th – 27th 2018.
As reported by the website www.fieragricola.it the 114th edition of FierAgricola will be held in Verona from Wednesday 29 January to Saturday 1 February 2020.
2018 Fieragricola edition ended with over 130 thousand visitors, consolidating the figure of the previous edition and confirming itself among the most attractive international events at the European level.
The topics dealt with in this fair were, in particular, the international issues related to economic, environmental and social sustainability, which have been leading the zootechnical companies and all the links in the food supply chain for some time now; the subject of precision agriculture was also dealt with, the model conceived by the EU centered on the environmental and economic sustainability of the choices in the agrarian field.
For 2020 FierAgricola Verona will focus on the areas of animal husbandry and agricultural mechanization, but also renewable energy, the circular economy (based on regeneration, reuse and recycling) and services.
In view of this new event, Due A Srl is already at work: our internal design office is studying new products aimed at improving the welfare of the animals and the ease of management of the farms, to be presented to the operators of the sector, to keep up with an increasingly dynamic and demanding market.
Even the ideas for the new stand are not lacking, but our distinctive signs will remain constant: the logo with the unmistakable red color and the reproductions of the structures: arched tunnel, Vertical tunnel and Ovile tunnel, which during the last editions received a notable success, and proved to be an excellent way to show customers the main features of our products!
Obviously our technical-commercial staff will be present to satisfy all your curiosities!
For some years the consumer has not been satisfy with having any other agri-food product, but claims the healthiest and most natural top of the range.
Specifically in the dairy sector is increasing the demand for "milk-hay", the milk from animals fed only with hay, used for the production of Parmigiano Reggiano (produced exclusively with this type of milk).
Just on the subject of fodder, took place on May 16th, in Modena, a meeting organized by Nova Agricoltura, to discuss various aspects related to this product: its cultivation and harvesting, the relationship between quality of forage and yield of cattle, the requirements that make hay-milk suitable to be transformed into Parmigiano Reggiano. (from Informatore Zootecnico nr.10 / 31.05.18)
In order for the fodder to arrive in the stable still rich in all its organoleptic properties, it is necessary that the best technologies are used during cultivation, harvesting and storage.
In terms of storage, Due A proposes the Tunnel as the optimal solution.
Whether arched or straight leg, the tunnel is an economic solution but at the same time allows you to store the hay, keeping it in excellent condition and reducing product losses.
Its iron structure, with a PVC cover, prevents water from entering; the opening heads, the mesh windows on the eardrums and the possible addition of fans allow the interior rooms to be aired, reducing condensation and moisture formation.

The 38th FAM - Agricultural Fair Mugellana (FLORENCE) took place in a "climate" of great interest, proving to be able to go beyond the local borders, involving and attracting operators of the livestock sector also from foreign countries.
This factor reflects the professionalism of local operators and their wish to grow and confront, given by the passion and the desire to share, especially in people who gravitate around the A.R.A. (Regional Breeders Association) and their families.
A lunch for farmers and supporters for 180 people was organized under the fair tent.
The adventure of Due A at Mugello fair began 2 years ago with first models of Tarpaulin Covers presented as hay storages, fodder or agricultural tools; these structures are removable type, but at the same time they are resistant both to natural atmospheric agents and to artificial pollutants.
Due A offers various solutions of complete systems for fattening such as Gold Farm Tunnel with PVC cover or the classic iron structure with insulated covering, that has been designed to be set up with our equipment:
- head iron tubes on feeding line;
- gates to divide internal area in different boxes;
- anti-waste drinkers
All these products have been designed to ensure maximum welfare for the animal and good management of the breeding plant.
As always, Due A technicians are available for further technical and economic information.
In the calves boxes it rests and eats the future of your business. Targeted investments are usually made on the herd in production, losing sight of the growth and longevity of the animals that will guarantee the company's future. For this reason, Due A has studied a system that guarantees a healthy and easily managed environment in the first days of life.
It is a system that cleverly groups calves born in the company into a single module that, in addition to being tailor-made according to the stable, creates an ideal environment for the first three months of life, easy to manage, and that meets all the requirements of animal welfare, in the various seasons and in different situations.
The new Due A modular calf stable is suitable for both small and large farms; it can range from 20 to 80 seats, and can be used for animals from 0 to 30 days or from 0 to 90 days, depending on the type of growth and type of breeding.
The Due A calf stable is a warming environment during the winter, and in summer guarantees the maximum natural and artificial ventilation, keeping the calves protected from the sun and the elements; in this way it is a healthy environment, and at the same time easy to manage in terms of power distribution and daily cleaning management.
Here are some photos of plants already started, which are giving excellent results.
Passed in 90 days of stay in calf stable, the animals can be transferred to multiple boxes, where they will rest in litter and start to develop, making a difference for the future.
We believe that making the animal live in a healthy environment, from the first days of life, and always keeping in mind the restrictive rules on the use of medicines, can really make a difference on future levels of profitability.
As always, our technicians are available for further technical and economic information.
Below is the article published in the publication nr 2 of 15.03.18 of the "Allevatori Top" sector magazine, in the Special AgriUmbria section.
On this occasion, we invite you to visit the following link, to learn more about “Allevatori Top” and its interesting contents!
For the farms in the areas affected by the earthquake, the Italian company has developed a package of products tested in the field, which combine safety, resistance to atmospheric events and animal health, and which put ruminants in the conditions to perform at their best.
Once upon a time there were the emergency stalls passed by the Region in the immediate post-earthquake. Those "pre-packaged" tunnels, with sloped columns and hermetically closed, which have sprung up like mushrooms in the earthquake areas. Then, since last July, the purchase procedures have changed, and today the breeder has in fact the possibility of being subsidized the product of his preference. "And finally we builders - adds Andrea Antonini, owner of the Due A of Villalta di Gazzo (Pd) - we are no longer bound to provide facilities according to what was the tender specifications. Therefore, as Due A, we offer breeders vertical-column tunnels, equipped with gates and fixed fences. These structures are in any case economic, but definitely more performing, and are resistant to snow and other atmospheric events typical of the mountain climate, and are designed to ensure full animal welfare conditions for sheep and cattle ".
Let's start with the ventilation, which is essential to prevent condensation: "in our tunnels - underlines Antonini - natural ventilation is ensured by the central dome, which together with the re-closable mesh windows, present on the sides of the tunnel in proportion to its length, it creates a suitable flow of air circulation: the fresh air enters from the windows and from the windscreen comes out hot and stale air. To this can be added the forced ventilation, provided by fans positioned on the tunnel heads. In addition, as far as cattle are concerned, we can supply structures equipped with a motorized windbreak network on one side of the structure, before which we can then place the external paddock for the heifers, which thus have the opportunity to perform functional gymnastics they need to get in shape to the first fertilization and the first birth ". Inside the tunnels, here are the boxes, which can be modified in width and length according to your needs.
"We then realized - continues our interlocutor - a package of modular structures, where each module is standardized, 6 meters long. So the breeder, based on the number of animals to be managed, can choose 12 to 42 meters long tunnels. These are always removable tunnels, easy to dismantle and reassemble, respectful of animal welfare: inside they are equipped with bedding for overnight shelter, in case the company practices grazing, or traditional intensive bedding. In this second case it is provided the equipment of motorized feeders, or the classic feeders in cement with self-capture. Moreover, if the structure is destined for sheep and goats, the litter boxes are not equipped with flooring, to ensure that the flock constantly tramples a surface similar to that found on the pastures. If instead it is a tunnel for cattle, the litter has a concrete part, but at the disposal of the animals there is always a paddock ".
Due A Srl also proposes alternative systems to the classic side in cement or panel: the shading windbreaker nets, applicable to new realizations or in addition to existing structures.
This product, entirely designed and installed by our technical staff, has multiple advantages.
Having the nets as side infill, allows to limit the solar radiation inside the stables, thus avoiding excessive heating of the rooms.
At the same time, however, the networks allow to ventilate, avoiding the "greenhouse" effect; combining the use of nets with the application of fairing and fans, the ventilation of the stables can be improved considerably, greatly reducing the negative effects of heat stress; it is possible to direct the various drafts, favoring natural ventilation.
